Re: Record Hay Price in Hillsdale Michigan

Followed up on your posting about the record hay sale in Michigan (full story), though I've still not been able to learn how much those bales weighed.

 

Anyway, the hay situation is getting dramatic in some areas of the country.

 

Any further reports on selling prices in your neighborhoods?

 

Thanks....

Re: Record Hay Price in Hillsdale Michigan

Here's the hay and straw report from Yoder and Frey's auction in Archbold, Ohio.  Top hay went for $6.75 in small squares and $81.00 in rounds.

They also sell by the bale and not by the ton.  I'd estimate small squares usually weigh from 35 to 60 pounds in my experience there.

Re: Record Hay Price in Hillsdale Michigan

  I was at that auction.  The $81 rounds were extremely large, 5X6 footers.  The purchaser of them estimated them to weigh 1600#.
